I may be working with Cubase in the future and I was advised (affordably) to go with the VST instruments, and load and sequence them in Cubase. Can these instruments be as realistic and reliable as a high quality keyboard or sound module? And if they’re good, what name brand to look for? I’m pretty sure they have low quality as well as high. And I’m also (as mentioned in a previous post) looking for high quality drum kits: kick drums that punch, thick snares, crisp hi-hats, etc. And I didn’t know whether to spend alota cheese on a Roland MV-8000 and just buy samples (is it even worth it?), or trust in the VST Instruments. Or am I comparing Day and Night as far as quality is concerned?
